Careers in Social Work

Social Workers at Barwon Health are a dedicated team and play an integral role in a diverse range of health areas. These range from acute and sub-acute to community-based programs, across multiple campuses. With primary working locations at the University Hospital of Geelong (UHG) Campus and the McKellar Inpatient Rehabilitation (IRC) campus, social workers are always on the front line, ready to provide exceptional care to those who need it most.

As a Social Worker at Barwon Health you will have the opportunity to work in many areas across the organisation such as acute health, rehabilitation (inpatient and community-based), community health, mental health, drug and alcohol, public health, education, research and palliative care.

As a team-based role, our social workers enjoy a dynamic and rewarding work environment, where team members support each other daily. Our understanding of the health environment is crucial to our success, as we work in a multi-disciplinary setting, alongside nurses, doctors, and other allied health professionals.

At Barwon Health, our social workers provide a wide range of services; from psychosocial assessment to clinical intervention and risk management. With a focus on meeting the needs of the client and family, social workers are always ready to go above and beyond to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.

We also actively participate in wider service meetings, education opportunities, and working groups; working collaboratively with dynamic and supportive social work and multidisciplinary teams. Join us today and discover what it truly means to be a part of a team that makes a real difference in the lives of others.
